This an image of Red Sprites and the milky-way. The image was captured from my front yard in Hereford, AZ. The image faces the Coronado National Monument in the Huachuca Mountains.
The thunderstorm occurred on August 31, 2019. I was taking a time lapse of the Storm and milky-way using an astro modified Canon 6D and a Tamron 15-30mm lens @f2.8 and15mm.
Individual stills were obtained using a 13 second exposure time at ASA 1600. This was my first attempt to capture a thunderstorm using time lapse. I think had some beginners luck.
